Birds of Fantasy Calendar, Wall, Pomegranate
We presume that these watercolors of birds are Chinese in nature; they were done on eighteenth-century paper from Holland. The paintings may have once been a single accordion-fold manuscript in the Chinese style, yet many of the images reflect early-eighteenth-century Western design and detail. Were they painted by a Chinese artist living in Europe, or were they commissioned from a Chinese art or studio by a European customer? No matter - just savor the beauty and talent that produced these lovely creatures. This 2006 Wall calendar was published by Pomegranate.
